Military police in Banteay Meanchey province’s Poipet town on Tuesday arrested a beggar accused of pouring acid on her 2-year-old son in an attempt to get more money from passersby, officials said. Rath Srean, provincial military police chief, said police had been searching for the woman for more than a week. “She was detained for a while at the military police office in order to question her further about the accusations from the witnesses, who say they saw the woman douse her son with acid,” he said. He added that the child had a wound on his right leg, but that he had not determined whether it had been caused by acid burns.
